Deadline approaching for Most Admired Senior Citizen

The Pierce County Fair Office announced in May, due to its great success, the 11th annual Pierce County Fair's Most Admired Senior Citizen event will continue. Time is ticking away — the nomination deadline is July 21 (postmarked). An entry form and copy of the rules can be obtained by calling the fair office at 715-273-6874 or by visiting the fair website at; click on "Most Admired Senior Citizen."

Do you have a special friend or relative who is over 60 years old? He or she could be one of Pierce County's most admired senior citizens. No matter what your age, you can nominate your favorite senior citizen. Just fill out an entry form as completely as you can and have that special friend or relative sign the statement at the end of the entry.

This free event is not a popularity contest, beauty pageant or celebrity sweepstakes. It is, however, a chance for older adults to receive the recognition they deserve. Winners will be selected on the basis of current volunteer activity, rather than past accomplishments.

The three most admired senior citizen winners will be announced at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 11, at a special program during the Pierce County Fair in the picnic shelter.

Mail your nomination to: Pierce County Fair, Attn: Ann M. Webb, 364 N. Maple — Box 922, Ellsworth, WI 54011.

Give that special senior citizen in your life the recognition they deserve. See you at the fair Aug. 10-13 — "Butter than Any Udder Fair." Like us on Facebook at "Pierce County Fair and Fairground (WI)."
